Debbie Harry + Blondie | The Diva Series

Blondie is an American New Wave and Punk band formed in the late 70s by frontwoman Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. While their first two albums performed well in the UK and Australia, they were largely considered an underground band in the US. It wasn’t until the release of “Parallel Lines” in 1978 and several single releases that varied in the US and UK that the group struck gold with the massively successful disco-infused “Heart Of Glass.”

Shortly after, everyone’s focus was on the lead singer Debbie Harry who soon became a fixture at Studio 54 and one of several muses for Andy Warhol. In performances, she could easily glide between sexy and sensual to outright punk and don’t give a fuck. For a queer boy like me, she was the main fixture next to Chrissie Hynde hung up on my bedroom wall as I entered high school. She was one of my idols. In fact, “Eat To the Beat” is one of my all-time favorite albums that I’d play religiously until I wore it out and had to purchase a new copy.

This tribute to Debbie Harry and Blondie focuses on the group’s career as well as Ms. Harry’s solo work. I’ve taken the best of the remixes from various official collections released over the years and disregarded the worst. Then I pulled in more recent releases along with a few bootlegs to paint a complete picture of her and the band’s work, as it pertains to the dancefloor.

Love her or hate her, Debbie Harry is the consummate DIVA who paved the way for many female artists. It is with complete love and devotion that Party Favorz recognizes those achievements and inducts the one and only Debbie Harry into the Diva Hall of Fame.
